The world-renowned wine writers and experts have picked 63 wines among all the red wines in the world to compete for the title of the best red wine of 2022. Nominated by wine expert Caroline Gilby, Merlot Single vineyard de Baguer 2018 was the only Merlot and the only Slovenian wine in the running for this prestigious title. It obtained a great score of 93 points. The team at Klet Brda, led by their main oenologist Darinko Ribolica, is proud to have received the nomination and the impressive score.
“What is special about this Merlot from our De Baguer cellar is the fact that it is a single vineyard, meaning that it is produced in one vineyard. We grew the grapes in the vineyard Vrh v Vipolžah, which has been giving excellent results for years. This terraced vineyard with a great sunny location grows on a classic marl soil and has been cultivated according to the principles of sustainable production for the last decade. In the batch there are 1,775 bottles and there is a limited number of bottles left, so wine lovers should hurry to get their hands on one of them, » said Darinko Ribolica.
